Abstract

The spermatology reference laboratories located at the TiHo Hannover and IFN Schonow have been developing science-based quality control programs for boar studs for many years. In ongoing research projects funded by the FBF e. V. (Forderverein Biookonomieforschung), influencing factors on sperm...

Abstract

This study investigated differences between phenotypes of daughters of artificial insemination (AI)-bulls and daughters of natural service (NS)-bulls, respectively, on organic dairy farms in Switzerland. Organic rules recommend the use of natural mating. Therefore it is of interest whether those...

Abstract

Background: Domestication, breed formation and intensive selection have resulted in divergent cattle breeds that likely exhibit their own genomic signatures. In this study, we used genotypes from 27,612 autosomal single nucleotide polymorphisms to characterize population structure based on 9214...

Abstract

Switzerland is officially free from bovine Tritrichomonas foetus. While bulls used for artificial insemination (AI) are routinely examined for this pathogen, bulls engaged in natural mating, as well as aborted fetuses, are only very sporadically investigated, indicating that the disease awareness...

Abstract

In Switzerland, group-housing for breeding rabbit does is not explicitly required by law, but label programmes, as well as the general public and animal welfare groups, are advocating it. Although group-housing is of great benefit to the gregariously living rabbits, the establishment of a social...

Abstract

Cooperative forms of animal breeding are still dominating in Southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The breeding organizations are supported by public research facilities which allow Bavarian farmers to compete in genetic progress and to apply state of the art methods although the majority of...

Abstract

This article discusses the steadily increasing milk yield and milk production of various dairy cows in Switzerland. The beneficial effects of breeding value and genetic improvement through selection of dairy cows on their average milk yield are highlighted. Linear description and classification of...

Abstract

The improvement of meat quality and production traits has high priority in the pork industry. Many of these traits show a low to moderate heritability and are difficult and expensive to measure. Their improvement by targeted breeding programs is challenging and requires knowledge of the genetic and ...
